Andy Lamb was suffering from renal failure and was only being kept alive by dialysis sessions, until his wife Samantha persuaded him to take one of her kidneys.
The 41-year-old mother-of-one,lost more than 3st in weight to make sure that she would be healthy enough for the transplant operation in October 2009.
At the time of the operation Andy said:
Sam's doing all this for me and I'll never get over that. She is just amazing and fantastic.I could never put into words how I feel about this. If this happens she will have given me the gift of life.
Just a few years after the life-saving procedure, their marriage was over when Mr Lamb walked out on his wife in August 2012.
Samantha believes he was having an affair with her friend Clare whom she confronted.He needed a new kidney or he would die.He was on dialysis three times a week.I would definitely go through the operation again but I wouldn’t give the kidney to him.I hate him. If I could, then I would take it back and give it to someone else.
Andy still denies having an affair with Samantha's friend but admits walking out on her.
The couple met when they were both drivers for a private ambulance firm and started dating in 2004, and got married in 2007.
